Ethiopian is 3rd airline to get Dreamliner
Ethiopian Airlines today will become the third airline in the world Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and the first outside Japan Ã¢â‚¬â€œ to take delivery of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The airline will get the proverbial keys to the jet around 4.p.m. ET today at a ceremony near Boeing’s Dreamliner production line in Everett, Wash.
On Wednesday, Ethiopian will fly the jet from Everett to Washington Dulles where it will show off the jet in a media ceremony outside Washington, D.C., which has one of the world’s largest Ethiopian populations outside Ethiopia.
